It’s getting out of hand.
Living in California is tiresome in itself thanks to the innate political landscape, flagrant taxation and its Third-World geological fault-sized chasm between the haves and the rest of us.
But living in Los Angeles is beyond description. There are parts of California where you can escape the leftist, Democratic quagmire that suffocates all political discourse and balanced expression. If you’re really intent. But if you’re in Los Angeles, you’re trapped behind enemy lines. Forget escape or shelter. This is a company town full of virtue-signaling Liberals and concern-Leftista’s and urban-snark flitterati, and if you are looking to distance yourself from the showbiz political malarkey that shapes pop culture and the mass media, you will literally need to leave town.
This is no country of Conservative Men. If so, you’re out of your element, buddy. Hope you’re not here for the love!
And if there is any doubt that Los Angeles is done for, and in a to-go doggy bag, consider one thing: this city of 4 million truly loves Barack Obama. The infatuation is not cute. In fact, it strikes me as stalker uneasy.
First, there was the freeway.
City officials saw it direly necessary to re-brand a portion of the 134 Freeway in the Northeast part of the city to “President Barack H. Obama Highway.”
Now, scaling down the magnificence of our ex-President, city officials have named a street after America’s first Shonda Rhimes Presidential caricature.
The city of Los Angeles on Saturday renamed a section of a road as Obama Boulevard in honor of the 44th president of the United States.
The name unveiling happened at 5 p.m. during a ceremony and day-long festival to celebrate the historic occasion.
Obama Boulevard has replaced 3 1/2 miles of what was Rodeo Road between Mid-City and Culver City. The stretch of road intersects with Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and further establishes a “presidential row” that includes Washington, Adams and Jefferson boulevards.
Not to be outdone, representatives of the African-American community here in the City of the Angels are indulging is a garish bit of cultural appropriation as they seek to re-brand, once again, another historic cultural moniker for the sake of All that is Obama.
